Looks like the 2010 Census will be officially disappearing gay marriage data.
The U.S. Census Bureau, reacting to the federal Defense of Marriage Act and other mandates, plans to edit the 2010 census responses of same-sex couples who marry legally in California, Massachusetts or any other state. They will be reported as "unmarried partners," rather than married spouses, in census tabulations – a policy that will likely draw the ire of gay rights groups.
If the Census Bureau is not going to count gay marriages in the 2010 Census, I will be boycotting the 2010 Census entirely. I don't see any reason to perpetuate the agency's compilation of false, inaccurate data.
